You're right Glenn, I'll open a new bugzilla issue on FOP and pursue the
discussion on fop-users@xmlgraphics.apache.org.<fop-users@xmlgraphics.apache.org>
For user information and to close this discussion on this newsgroup: I
found a solution to obtain a minimum height value by using
'block-progression-dimension.optimum' attribute in addition with
block-progression-dimension.minimum attribute:

   xmlns:fo="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Format">
   <fo:layout-master-set>
      <fo:simple-page-master master-name="simple" page-height="297mm"
page-width="210mm" margin-bottom="0mm" margin-left="0mm" margin-right="0mm"
margin-top="0mm">
         <fo:region-body/>
      </fo:simple-page-master>
   </fo:layout-master-set>
   <fo:page-sequence master-reference="simple">
      <fo:flow flow-name="xsl-region-body">
<fo:block-container position="absolute" top="245mm" left="80mm"
width="115mm" border="0.75pt solid black"
block-progression-dimension.minimum="37mm"
block-progression-dimension.optimum="37mm">
    <fo:block margin="3mm" font-family="Arial" font-size="11pt"
line-height="15pt" linefeed-treatment="preserve"
white-space-collapse="false">Your text here</fo:block>
</fo:block-container>

     </fo:flow>
   </fo:page-sequence>
</fo:root>

Lanz
